follow me home


Using the photo reference from Terry Miura's Challenge, I splashed watercolour onto paper, let it dry, then added the pen contour drawing. I usually draw first and paint second, so this was quite a refreshing change.

  6. Yes, you really let the line work and just ad enough to give it some complexity without it feeling overworked, nicely done.

  9. I love it. Did you know what you were going to draw when you were splashing the paint or did that come afterwards? Delightful!

  10. I was reading about water colors without boundaries, similar to what you have tried here, but in reverse! I think yours is one of the best original styles in water colors that I have come across Nora..wow, so refreshing!

  19. Ciao Nora, I like this procedure: it is the same of your presentation of blog. I think that it is a good method to assemble many elements leaving every one caractheristic.
    Ciao, ciao, Floriana
